I was introduced to the work of Japanese architect Tadao Ando last year when I visited his restoration of Venice, Italy’s Punta della Dogana. Helped by some valuable insight from my wife, already a fan, I immediately fell in love with his ideas and aesthetic. NOWNESS created a beautiful short on the condos he’s designing in Manhattan’s NoLita, his first building in the city. He’s called the space a sanctuary and looks to create a place of quiet and tranquility within the city’s relentless noise for the building’s lucky residents.
